Gosh I’ve been away from here for ages – two months – I hadn’t realised it had been so long.
Life has been busy – when isn’t it? Nothing drastic or particularly new, same old same old, teenagers, elderly mother, work, trying and failing to get fitter, do more sport, achieve elusive balance in my life. I am making time for me though. Whenever I can.
After a particularly stressful, and frankly very annoying, week at work I decided that today was for me. I ran in the morning with the running ladies. It wasn’t great. Too fat, unfit and full of beta blockers for that, but at least I went. I tried. It can only get better! Since then I’ve been reading and rag-rugging.
There is something incredibly satisfying and relaxing about making a rag rug. I’m sure it has to do with my never-ending urge to simplify and use up everything I have. I really love the rugs I make. I couldn’t buy something similar and they are just so incredibly practical. This one is heading from the space on the wooden floor where I get out of bed….
The fabric situation is rather out of control again and a rag rug is a perfect destash method. 15 yards of ugly fabric that would otherwise never be used. I still can’t see the slightest difference in the fabric cupboard. That’s always the way, isn’t it? Once I’m done I should probably have a little bit of a sort out and tidy up and see if someone the piles of fabric that are sitting around my sewing room might just fit in.
Which would be really very satisfying.
I will try not to leave it so long the next time. I have some things I really want to show you. I’ve been busy!
Have a nice weekend,
